What is meiosis and mitosis?

Mitosis- its a division of one cell; into two identical cells. prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase and cytokenesis are the steps. Meiosis- its a division in which o

How does meiosis differ from mitosis?

Mitosis makes new cells that are used during growth, development, repair, and asexual reproduction. Meiosis makes cells that enable an organism to reproduce s

How is meiosis similar to mitosis?

Both meiosis and mitosis are forms of cell reproduction. They both have a prophase and an anaphase. Both are forms of cell reproduction/ Both are forms of nuclear division.

Is the zygote dividing by mitosis or meiosis?

A zygote is created by the fertilization of two haploid cells created by meiosis. Because a zygote is fertilized by two haploid cells, it is diploid. It then has to divide and

Mitosis is to somatic cells as meiosis is to what?

Germ cells. Somatic cells perform mitosis to get genetically identical daughter cells, and germ cells perform meiosis to get genetically different cells. In gametophytes, it's

Why meiosis is called modified mitosis?

Meiosis is very similar to mitosis. Meiosis produces two "half-cells" after the first cell division. Mitosis, however produces two fully genetically capable cells. After mitos
